cheesy shrimp and rice

I made this dish one night after work and surprisingly, it came together quickly. Just make sure to have your ingredients ready! This quick dish serves one but can easily be doubled, just adjust the ingredients to fit the serving size.

What you’ll need:

  • ¼ cup rice or quinoa
  • 1 medium sized tomato, halved
  • ½ cup + ½ tbsp. chopped onion
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • olive oil
  • dried oregano
  • dried basil
  • pinch of sea salt + black pepper
  • 4 oz. shrimp (best to use raw, shelled + deveined)
  • fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup diced tomato
  • ½ tbsp. white wine or vinegar
  • ¼ tsp. chopped garlic
  • 2 tbsp. crumbled feta cheese
  • Fresh Italian parsley
  1. Cook the rice or quinoa as directed.
  2. In a bowl, combine your halved tomato with ½ cup chopped onion, 1 tsp. sugar, 1 tsp. olive oil, dried oregano, dried basil and a pinch of salt + pepper.
  3. Place your halved tomato, cut side up, in a shallow baking dish that has been coated with cooking spray. Make sure you clear the bowl of all the onion and seasonings.
  4. Roast in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. You want the tomatoes to be soft but still have good form.
  5. In the same bowl you used for the tomato, toss the shrimp with ½ tbsp. lemon juice.
  6. In a large skillet saute 2 tbsp. chopped onion with 1 tsp. olive oil for 1-2 minutes.
  7. Add the diced tomato, white wine or vinegar, chopping garlic, dried oregano, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook 4-5 minutes until bubbly and hot.
  8. Reduce the heat on the skillet and let it simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
  9. Stir in the shrimp and transfer to a medium sized baking dish and top with feta cheese and bake until the shrimp are cooked through (the feta won’t really melt, it’ll just soften) about 10 minutes (you don’t want to over cook the shrimp – they’ll continue to cook after you take them out of the oven).
  10. Serve the shrimp mix and roasted tomato on top of your rice or quinoa.
  11. Finish with fresh chopped parsley + enjoy!
